    Absolutely perfectly put. I fear what will happen with the Toxic BBQ comes roaring back next year.

    Thank you so, so much for your hard work, even when it's just been being told "no" and "not really" a dozen times - imho that's the hardest work of all.

    No one can just half-ass or magically spontaneous-mob an event as well-handled as the BBQ into existence, and I'm always amazed as how well the BBQ goes.

    Don't Tell him..... Sometimes it is better to beg forgiveness than ask permission.

    I will and if you do manage to "cook" something up, you'll be my hero!

    Oh, you probably shouldn't have contacted them, now they know who to blame when it all goes bad :) I meant "just show up until they call the police"

I will just have to look forward to next year and keep my fingers crossed that a miracle might happen for this year.

They did offer to cater the event for us but that's not really the intent of the BBQ. Even if they let us have the parking lot I am concerned about the amount of people and the amount of food and grill space we would need for everyone since I would expect many more to attend with it on site.

    I'll send you a PM maybe we can talk about the details.

    Yeah, thanks for all the hard work, and I'm sure it'll be great next year!

    http://predefcon.org - everyone is welcome to come to the AP (pool 3) on thursday and do an underground BBQ - by underground I mean "don't tell the hotel". Like the first Toxic BBQ you'll have to bring your own BBQ, food, utensils, fixins, drinks, etc. None of this "I'll just show up and they'll feed me" mentality. There's also an on-site bar and restaurant for the planning-impaired.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone!

    Londo ,
    Sucks but I think we all understand. If there is someway any of us could help out and do some leg work let us know.
    I mean you have at least 500 hacker types to help motivate those in need of motivation.
    oh and thanks for the ride way back at TBBQ1

    What Converge said x10 to the power of 10. When you start paying for an event the size and magnitude of cool that the BBQ has been, THEN you can piss and moan about it all you want.

    I'm in for a group dinner.

    Bummer. I was glad to have made it out to my first and only Toxic last year (thanks to CyMike and the Hacker Bus for transport).
